Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.)

Our fashionable upstate New York woman once again, seen earlier on this porch here, here reading a paper that gave us the hint of the year 1912. There is a headline referring to "sailing under false colors" and a search led us to a 1912 news item about an imposter who gave himself various identities in order to woo and marry young women. The fact that other articles about him use the same phrase suggests it is the item in the paper she's holding. The paper is likely published either Rome or Utica NY. From a collection of glass and film negatives I purchased. View full size.
